There was so much anxiety expressed by the majority of the students before taking this course. Personally, I like math and dealing with formula’s and computations. The biggest challenge in this course for me was just learning the language and terminology. I can see how SPSS will aid us during our research. This course was essential in understanding the significance of the data and the practical use of statistics to evaluate and present data.
